Here's who believes Trump's wiretapping claim

This morning on Fox Business, President Trump boasted that he's had "so many people" tell him that he was right about his claim that Obama had his "wires tapped" for political reasons. "What they did was horrible," he said.

Quick review: There was an investigation into the situation after Trump's first wiretapping tweet allegation, but it didn't prove anything. Then there was a twist in the plot when House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announced he'd received evidence of the Obama administration spying on Trump's people. But it later came out that Nunes got his info from Trump's people after he was caught on White House grounds in security footage. Eventually, Nunes dropped out of the investigation and it will continue without him.
